Dino tennis was busy this week with three matches in three days. The tiresome stretch did not start the way Carbon hoped after the Dinos fell to Grand in Moab 0-5. Cameron Jones was the closest Dino to picking up a set. He lost 6-7 (3-7), 2-6 in first singles. Nick Bryner picked up a couple games, but that would be it, falling 0-6, 3-6 in second singles. Everyone else lost 0-6, 0-6.

Then, on Wednesday, Carbon returned home to play Delta. It was a close match, but Carbon stole the edge to win, 3-2. Dresden Miller picked up a big win in second singles 6-0, 6-1. Then, in first doubles, Memphis Howell and Bryner took care of business 7-5, 6-0. The pivotal match came down to a tiebreaker in third singles. Dylan Black persevered with a huge 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (12-10) victory. Jones fell 3-6, 6-2, 3-6 in first singles while Judson Varner and Hayden Todachinnie fell 2-6, 3-6 in second doubles.

Back on the road on Thursday, the Dinos headed to Gunnison Valley. The Bulldogs controlled the match in this one and went on to win 4-1. The only Dinos to pick up the victory were Howell and Bryner in first doubles, 6-3, 6-4. Everyone else struggled to find consistent success. Full results can be found here.

Carbon will have a similar schedule next week. The Dinos will go to San Juan on Tuesday and Union on Wednesday. They will then face South Sevier at home on Thursday.
